It is expected that Farrell will take

ssibly the hurdles.s
The relays are the greatest source of

First Tilt with Big Nine
:ichigan is making its first ap-
trance in a big western conference

urally be the center of the attrac-
a for the conference contenders, and
the coach is anxious to make the best
Hoyt of Grinnell Looks Good
O'Brien is looking forward to some
keen competition in the 75-yard dash.
Scofield will probably be sent into this
event as well, and the 440 anchor man
has been spreading quite a few sur-
prises this season. Hoyt, of Grinnell,
who captured the 220-yard event in the
Drake relays from ex-Captain Smith
last spring, will be entered in the
short dash. Hoyt broke the 220 re-
cord around a turn to accomplish the
feat. While not as strong in a short-
er dash, Hoyt can be regarded as ex-
Among other notables to compete
against the Michiganders in this num-
ber will be Captain Smith of Wisconsin
-brother of Pat Smith. The Badger
leader took a year at Michigan before
entering his present school, and his
efforts will be watched with interest.
He won the western outdoor intercol-
legiates last spring, and is probably
the man to fight for premier honors.
Dopesters Pick Winners
Barker and Brightmore, of North-
western, and Carroll, of Illinois, are
all me who have seen fast competi-
tion. Graham and Fisher, of Chicago,
are picked as long shots in the pole
vault. Both have hovered around the
12 foot mark more than once. Lang

PITCHING STAFF OF 25 GIVES
PROMISE FOR FINE TWIRLERS
First Cut Must Be Made Soon So as
to Reduce Overcrowded Con-
dition in Gym
Yesterday's practice entertained
more than 60 candidates for the team.
Probably the largest attendance at
baseball practice since the season
opened received a fast workout.
Several new men turned out for the
first time, raising the total number
of canuidates proportionately. New-
comers are cropping out plentifully
and causing some of the earlier birds
much food for thought.
Work within the cage is progress-
ing rapidly, the 25 twirlers who are
working out are more than keeping the
receiving staff busy. Of the pitching
department, several men are looking
good and competition among the hurl-
ers bids fair to be as keen, if not even
more so, than that in any other de-
partment of the game. The number
of men who have had Varsity experi-
ence complicates the matter some-
what for the new men. Shorty Mil-l
ler, Ohlmacher, Birmingham, and Joe
Robins, although the latter has not as
yet been out for regular work, will;
all have the call to a certain extent
over the rest. Among the other can-
didates Parks, Glenn, Lush, McAllister,
Getts, Niemann, and others are show-
ing lots of stuff and should make the
race for pitching honors on the 1917

Whether any George Sislers will bea

all the dope points to the fact that thet

Michigan has had since the famous
Sisler's time. Shorty Miller can un-
doubtedly be relied upon in the box,
and with Joe Robins probably will ber

tions in justice to the other candi-
dates who have not had the opportun-

of the state, lost to Battle Creek 14-20
and to Kalamazoo 17-44, but won from

FRESH TRACK MEN TO CHOOSE
LEADER AT MEETING TONIGHT

ity to show their wares.
The new nets were due to arrive
yesterday, according to advices from
the athletic office. But thus far, they
have failed to make their much
heralded appearance. The arrival of
the nets would be a material aid to
the coach, as batting practice could be
started immediately, and the squad
shaved down to a more workable size.
The coach stated that he could not
say just when a cut in the squad would
be made. At present the number of
candidates is rather large, and is
seemingly on the increase, so that a
process of subtraction will probably
be in order in the near future.
